However, looking back at my personal journey with WhyRU the Series is currently giving me a bittersweet kick in the gut.Continue reading “Of Boys & Men | The WhyRU the Series Experience [Opinion]”

A while back, a blogger friend posted a survey poll. The survey asked what is the main element that is making people go ga-ga over 2gether the Series? Is it acting? Aesthetics or production?
